Hey everyone, I have the best striped sweater to share with you today! I’ve already worn it several times and shared it on Instagram, but I also wanted to do a dedicated blog post about it because I think it’s one a lot of you will like. Happily, it’s still fully stocked!
It comes in a few solids, but I really love this striped print. The colors are so pretty for spring, and the material is thick enough to start wearing now, even if it’s still chilly in your neck of the woods.
That said, if you’re not a fan of stripes, the solid ivory and Navy Peacoat are great basics to have in your spring wardrobe, and that Blue Maui is absolutely gorgeous.
I’ve worn this sweater with white jeans and light wash denim, but for this look, I tried pairing it with dark wash skinnies. These are my Good American high waist skinnies, and I love them, but Wit & Wisdom has a similar pair for less if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly.
I like how the dark wash in the jeans draws out the navy stripes in the top, but it also creates quite a contrast against the white background of the sweater, and I feel like that highlights the fact that the sweater is a little too long on me. Otherwise I like the pairing a lot.
I’m wearing the small, and it seems to run slightly big, but I expect the sweater to take up some when I wash it and I hope that will help it fit better. It also comes in petite sizes for those of you who are 5’4″ or under. (I’m 5’5″, for reference.)
I’m wearing blush wedge espadrille slides and carrying a blush colored bag because I like how they echo the pink in the sweater. My bag is old, but this one in the Pink Rosecloud is similar. Pink Dust is pretty too.
I picked up these wedges during the Shopbop sale. I had my eye on them for a while, and when I saw a chance to get them for 25% off, I took it. This brand just fits me so well, and the quality is outstanding. They’re currently 25% off at StuartWeitzman.com but they don’t have this Dolce color. The Adobe Beige is a great neutral, and the Dovetail Blue Grey is gorgeous. They also come in black.
Since they’re a splurge, I looked around and found a very similar pair by Caslon for under $100. You can see more of them in my Try On Haul yesterday. They’re comfortable, but they don’t fit as snug to the foot as the Stuarts, so my feet slide too far forward in them. There’s nothing worse than a woman wearing sandals where her toes are hanging off the end! Haha! That said, if you have thicker/wider feet, they will likely work for you.
I love this look for running around doing errands, working from home, or meeting a friend for lunch. It’s also nice for casual dinners out with the family, and that sort of thing. Or you could swap the jeans for pants and wear it to church or to work!
